Conley Selling Severin

Coach Dan Conley knows a bit about Syracuse tradition as a former player and having been a part of four Bowl wins while playing linebacker with the Orange. Right now he is communicating that to Canaan Severin and the wideout is definitely receptive and honored by some things he's saying.

Worcester Academy wide receiver Canaan Severin currently holds 11 scholarship offers and we expect him to start and narrow things down some time soon. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder has been talking to Dan Conley and Rob Moore and it's important to him to see Syracuse before making those cuts.

"I recently talked to Coach (Dan) Conley and Coach (Rob) Moore and they want me to come down and visit the campus in June," Severin explained. "I really hope I can make it down there as I really like Coach Moore. People have told me he was an excellent wide receiver and is an even better coach, so that definitely stands out to me."

"Coach Conley was telling me that it's hard to get kids to go to Syracuse because they weren't a top school for kids that grew up watching football these days, but when Coach Pasqualoni was there they had great players like Marvin Harrison and Donovan McNabb," Severin said. "I think his point was that they're on a mission to put the program back to where it once was by getting players like me on board. It's an honor for him to think I'm a player that could be that good and set them in that direction when he uses those names."

We asked Severin what he had to do to figure out if he'll visit.

"My Dad, my coach and I are just going to have to go over the plans and see what is going on, but like I said, I definitely want to visit there."

As a junior, Severin caught 35 catches for 550 yards and five touchdowns. He also had five interceptions on defense.
